A few years ago I was in Orlando at one of those outdoor Disney shows. As we sat in the audience my brother in-law came up with the idea to start the wave. One person in the midst of more than a thousand just trying to see what he could do. It started slowly with all of us joining in… After a few seconds people around us, laughing, decided to give it a go. Within a few minutes the entire audience was going back and forth, doing the wave. One person can make things happen.
Here is my proposal to all of you. If you have a blog, a twitter account, a Facebook page, a pulse, let’s take some of our social clout and make a difference each and every Wednesday. While I have several personal charities I support the most important one is a goal to help reduce unemployment, one person at a time. Please, on Wednesday’s going forward:
- Login to your social networks. Conduct business as usual.
- Take a moment away from your personal goals and share one job opportunity. It could be one in your company, one you have just heard about. Share it across your networks.
Simple, right? It’s time all of us do a little more. Enough said.
